as republicans here. i sort of feel like this is an effort at a bipartisan -- bipartisanship. i know sandy had to leave. we were talking about the ratings agencies and what debate. reading the executive management report from the ratings agency that also pointed to the congress that one of the reasons -- huge reason for the downgrade, they didn't feel that the congress had the political will to address the spending crisis that we are in either. so that was also a big part of the downgrade of our credit rating. now i think, you know, we are trying to exercise the political will to address our spending by having a budget which you can't really talk about appropriation bills and all of these kinds of things in my mind having this saddam continuing resolutions to fund the government forever is unsustainable. you need to pass a budget to begin with a foundation. >> mr. cole, i also talked to attorneys, our attorneys, some other attorneys, not just on our staff and i tell them, talk to me like i can understand you. because they talk too much legal lease. i ask them, if i get a paycheck in my account

and decided to not have a vote on the sandy relief package. that made house lawmakers angry in the northeast. governor chris christie of new jersey also had some tough words for him. he pulled the proposal because conservative republicans said the bill was loaded with pork with projects not related to the storm and they should've gone through the normal appropriations process. a couple days later, he narrowly hung onto his speakership as 10 republicans did not vote for him. now -- and right after that, they ended up passing a hurricane sandy bill. even that only received 49 republican votes. all that as a backdrop, house leaders last week went to williamsburg to figure out the task force on the debt ceiling on the across-the-board spending cuts known as the sequester, coming up. also, at the end of march, we have the continuing resolution, because the senate has not passed a full budget and the two chamber is not agree to a budget, but they have been working off a continuing resolution which funds the government for certain amount of time. it will end on march 27. house leaders tried to put
